It would have been interesting to see how popular it would have been if it had remained OTC.

I don't know if is was on that site or another, but I read that farmers have been using it on skin lesions on their animals for many years.

I developed rosacea in my late thirties, and have tried various things for that. None of them helped; my face was just varying degrees of redness and burning-itchiness on my cheeks. But now, since magnesium and especially my latest regimen, it looks pretty good most of the time. It's definitely stress/depression related still though, as I get extra redness under stress and when my mood goes down. (Like a job interview unfortunately.) I expect it is also related to hormones.
If I had the extra bucks, I would probably try this product: http://bioskincare.com/ It has a money back guarantee...which when you read the fine print says you're still out the shipping fee and a $9 processing fee, but still they're making the effort. I am so sick of buying stuff that doesn't work at all, that I would be glad to have any amount of my purchase price back.
I am thinking of trying something from this site for my skin spots. http://www.topicalinfo.org/Treatment.htmk Interesting comment about pancreatic enzymes fighting cancer. I read that somewhere else too.
Here's something you might find interesting: Topical Tea May Reduce Skin Cancer Risk
This is interesting too: http://www.no-moles.com/how%20it%20works.htm I have some skin tags I could use it on if not my other spots. Usually now I hema-clip them for 15 minutes, the cut them off. (I read about this on a doctor's site and thought I can sure do this myself!) It works good, but is harder to do when they're really small.
